The School of Arts

The School of Arts at Brunel University is at the cutting edge of arts education in the UK in all the subjects taught: drama, music, film and television, journalism, digital games, English, and creative writing. Our courses are forward-looking and innovative, and we have some of the most outstanding lecturers and professors in the country. Some of these are internationally renowned academics, publishing books that help to define and take forward their subjects, others are world-famous practitioners – novelists, composers, media and theatre artists – at the very forefront of creative arts practice.

Our School is home to over 1000 students who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures. The diversity of the School ensures a creative and dynamic learning environment, lending a unique and distinctive feel. All our students and staff share a passion for exploring and disseminating ideas about arts and media practice.

This combination of the academic and theoretical with the practical and creative is something that characterises the School of Arts and our courses, and makes it such an exciting and rewarding place to study. We stage over 100 live theatre and music performances a year; have our own Arts Centre and numerous research archives, and host conferences, creative writing events, and film screenings. We have a wonderful new performance and media complex, and have invested heavily in a new technological infrastructure to enable students to be at the leading edge of media and digital arts practice.

Our location close to London means students have access to all the great cultural resources of the capital. They also benefit from the School’s strong connections with major arts and media organisations in London, the wider UK and overseas (we are just 10 minutes from London Heathrow airport). Our students have gone on to work for leading employers in the arts, media, publishing and creative sectors.

We provide a stimulating and creatively dynamic environment where students can develop their full potential creatively, intellectually, and artistically; and can go on to great success in their careers.

About Brunel University

Brunel University was granted a Royal Charter in 1966, named after the famous Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the University enjoys a current student population of approximately 14,000.

Brunel has much to offer students coming from abroad:

Excellent location: Brunel is excellently situated 17 miles to the west of Central London and enjoys easy access to the city centre (1 hour on the underground Metropolitan line from the nearest town Uxbridge). The University is close to the London Heathrow Airport (20 minutes by car) and has close motorway links to the rest of the UK (within 15 minutes you have access to the M25, the M40 and the M4.) where you might travel to all parts of the UK. At Brunel you have the best of all possible worlds.

Integrated campus: Brunel University has an integrated campus where you can study, eat in the many restaurants, play sports, relax in the student union and finally rest, all within 7 minutes walk. Many universities cannot offer this integrated and safe campus atmosphere.

Sporting facilities: at Brunel you can enjoy almost any sport that you can imagine. Indeed we have been proud to be the host University to many world-class athletics and sportsmen and women in the last 5 years. In respect to sports, we have in the last two years invested millions on sporting facilities including a fitness centre and Olympic indoor running tracks, facilities that helped London secure the 2012 Olympic games. The Sunday Times recently said Brunel University had the best sporting facilities of all London Universities.

A supportive global community: Brunel University is proud that we have students from over 115 overseas countries. Whilst studying at Brunel you can meet students from many different cultures and countries. We also have a dedicated Graduate School with excellent facilities for exclusive use of our many postgraduate students.
